  1. Yes they allow any pets of any size. Just depends on if the office staff likes you or not. They say pets must be 15 lbs or less but ive seen dogs up to 50 lbs. Pets must not walk in corriders or elevators. But very few tenents follow these rules. The dogs urinate in the elevators and hallways running free. posted September 25, 2018

Apartment Checklist

Check For Waiting Lists

Most apartments have waiting lists. Search early and do not just settle on one apartment choice.

Contact Your Local Housing Authority

Housing authorities have many opportunities. Many do have closed waiting lists, but they may be able to provide other public housing resources.

Check The Federal Poverty Sliding Scale Guidelines

Check to see if you qualify for low cost or free housing by comparing the guidelines to your income records.
